During my trip to Japan I went to a gothic lolita tea party. The tea party was organised by the Japanese lolita community Wonder teatime. The leader of this community is Ai Akizuki, you might recognize her from her Youtube channel where she used to show all kind of lolita and other events.
Wonder teatime organizes several lolita events a year, I was lucky to be in Japan on the right time. You need to apply beforehand since their events are pretty popular and could be booked full.
I booked for the full service that day, including the tea party, getting your hair and make-up done and a photoshoot. The staff from Maison de Julietta, a lolita outfit rental and photoshoot shop in the famous shopping mall Laforet, located in Harajuku took care of the hair and make-up. Unfortunately I did not had time on this trip to actually also get a photoshoot at their shop, maybe next time.
I also got a package of circle lens contacts from the new brand Love Mark Lens. In my video I tell you more about it.
The day was very fun and it was very nice that Ai speaks perfectly English! Also the rest of the participants did their best in trying to talk to me, even when my Japanese is not very well and some had a hard time with speaking English, it was fun challenge. I bought my gothic lolita outfit at the shop Closet child which is located in Harajuku on the Takeshita dori, this is a second hand store, so most of the items have very nice prices, although some of the more popular designs still might be expensive.
I posted a picture of it on my Instagram, make sure to follow it!
